It brings me with great sadness to write that the concert I had been looking forward to since May 27 (the day I bought my tickets) has been postponed.

The show has been rescheduled for Sept. 30. As of this morning, Blink’s Web site says the show will remain the same (w/ openers Weezer, Taking Back Sunday and Chester French) however on Taking Back Sunday’s Web site, they say the show has been rescheduled but they aren’t sure if they are going to be playing yet. (*Note, Weezer and Taking Back Sunday, according to their tour dates on their Web sites, have no prior commitments on Sept. 30.)

I’ll leave at the bottom of this blog a video of Blink 182 performing “Down” off their 2003 self-titled record, which was in honor of DJ Am. In the video, it is pretty clear that these three men shouldn’t have been performing as bassist Mark Hoppus is clearly crying during the introduction and guitarist Tom Delonge can hardly sing his way through the song. It's still a touching tribute.
